- Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Price Comparison
It's another bargain at Play, and this time it's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow the victim of a price-cut, slashing the cost down to £17.99. Lords of Shadow enjoyed a very good reception, so good a sequel is already in the works. It's quite a recent title, too, so £17.99 is a terrific price. If you're an old-school Castlevania fan expecting the series' trademark labyrinthine dungeons reborn in HD, you might be a tad disappointed. Lords of Shadow, which apparently didn't start out life as a 'Vania game, is a far more linear affair in the God of War mold. You'll enter a new area, be it a werewolf-infested village being pounded by sheets of rain, or Gothic castles nestled in the midriff of snowy mountains, slaying all manner of fantastical beasts and bosses. It's an incredibly cinematic experience, although what else should you expect from a game under the tutelage of Hideo Kojima?
